Police Blame Road Rage For Murder Of Muslim Teen In Virginia

"We thank both Fairfax County Police and Loudoun County Sheriff's departments for their diligent efforts in investigating and apprehending a suspect", the ADAMS Center said.

Ezickson said Tuesday his organization is monitoring the investigation and has "every confidence in law enforcement to determine what happened to Nabra and whether the circumstances of her death merit a hate crimes charge".

But Hassanen couldn't face the unthinkable task confronting him as a parent on Monday morning, when his youngest daughter, 3-year-old Amarose, looked up at him and asked, "Where's Nabra?"

"He killed her because she's a Muslim - this is what I tell the detective", Mohmoud Hassanen said. The incident is not being investigated as a hate crime.

Mohammad Alsalti is a 23-year-old who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina.

This undated image provided by the Hassanen family shows Nabra Hassanen in Fairfax, Va. Police in Fairfax, Va., said Monday, June 19, 2017, that "road rage" was to blame for the slaying of a 17-year-old muslim girl wh.

Alsalti says he created a similar graphic that went viral in 2015 after three young Muslims were gunned down in their North Carolina home.

Police are not now investigating the murder as a hate crime.

He added: "He was running behind these kids".

Police have charged Martinez Torres with murder in the death of 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen. He has a public defender whose office declined comment. USA immigration officials requested that a "detainer" be placed on him at the county jail, meaning they are interested in possible future deportation proceedings.

Torres, 22, put the injured teen in his auto, officials said.

What To Watch For In Virginia's Gubernatorial Primaries
Perriello is touting his progressive credentials and has the support of the Vermont senator as well as Massachusetts Sen. Northam is a more traditional candidate who stresses his pragmatic approach and ability to work with Republicans.

Nabra's family has said she was wearing a long women's garment known as an abaya and a hijab head covering.

The apartment was in a sprawling complex with predominantly Spanish-speaking tenants.

"If nobody gave you a compliment, she gave you a compliment". He could get up to 40 years in prison if convicted on the murder charge.

"Nothing indicates it was motivated by race or religion" after it was determined to be a road rage incident, people are still attempting to politicizing the tragedy. The teens scattered, but, police said, the suspect caught up with them in a nearby parking lot, got out of his vehicle and allegedly chased after them with a baseball bat.

"We are devastated and heartbroken as our community undergoes and processes this traumatic event", ADAMS said in a statement. Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, of Sterling, is charged with her murder.

The principal of the suburban Washington high school that slain Muslim teen Nabra Hassanen attended says the 10th grader was a beloved student and a friend to all. "But the truth is, Nabra could've been attacked at any time of the day", Chaudry said. "He drove his auto up over a curb, and sort of up a hill, and then around and over into a parking lot, where to the best of our knowledge at this point, he simply caught up with Nabra".

The apparent lack of a hate crime offered little consolation to Nabra's family. "ADAMS has licensed counselors on site to assist anyone in need of counseling during these hard times", ADAMS officials said in a statement. Vigils are being held in her honor across the country this week.

Her funeral service is set for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Sterling mosque, Hooper said.

The police also believe Martinez Torres acted alone and said they are not looking for any other suspects. Wright declined to say what Martinez Torres has told police and said police had found some items of evidence. Many Muslims will eat meals in the predawn hours, however, which is why Hassanen and her friends were out getting food. Police allege that Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, got into an argument with a teen in the group as the friends returned to the mosque, drove his auto over a curb, chased the group and used a baseball bat to hit Hassanen in a parking lot nearby.

Torres appeared by videoconference from jail for an arraignment Monday in a Fairfax County juvenile court, Morrogh said.
